Linton Village College was awarded Artsmark Gold status in recognition of its outstanding contribution to the arts, including dance, drama, music and visual art. Head of Arts Linda Kähr is part of our CALSA programme (Cultural & Arts Leaders in Schools and Academies) and her students also performed as part of our celebration event.

“We are proud to have achieved Artsmark Gold and are committed to continually developing and extending the Arts experiences we offer young people. The Arts at LVC are seen as integral to the development of the whole child and an entitlement for all. We believe that the Arts offer valuable opportunities for working together towards mutual goals, growing leadership, confidence, resilience and team-work; invaluable skills for life and the future workplace. We were delighted to be invited to take part in the Cambridge Artsmark Celebration Event.” Linda Kähr, Head of Arts and CALSA at Linton VC

“Being involved in Artsmark has helped us to showcase and celebrate the importance and success of the Arts at Linton Village College. We are very proud of our commitment to a broad and enriching education. The Artsmark has been a vehicle for us to grow and enrich our Arts provision and to network with other schools and organisations that share our passion for offering a fabulous Arts experience.” Helena Marsh, Executive Principal at Linton VC
